My extended family gets together every year on the Saturday between Christmas and New Years for our annual White Elephant Gift Exchange. However, as our family has grown and moved away, our entire group is unable to get together every year. I really like the idea of being able to have this gift exchange online, but can’t figure out how it works. Could you please email me a complete description of how this actually works? Thanks! Looking forward to your reply!

Until next time – Debra KP Zook (McMinnville, Oregon)

Your situation if very similar to what Sarah and I have experienced. This is why we are building this internet mimic of the White Elephant Party. If you are on Facebook you can join the group: White Elephant Fans. This is the group that we are developing to assist us in all the beta testing. Or you can keep watching this blog for developments.
We anticipate a website with more details to be ready for a peek in about 30-days from now.
We will love to have your family take a look at what we are doing.
Thanks Debra!

I have never heard of the White Elephant Party or Exchange!!!!

Theresa,
The white elephant exchange is a style of gift exchange party where invitees bring a wrapped gift to share. The exchange is random, so the gift should be universal and usually a conversation starter. The most entertaining white elephant parties have some gifts that are unusual.
The playing order is selected at random and that person has a choice between opening a gift or “stealing” a gift from someone who has opened a gift previously. The stealing allows the person who lost a gift to then steal or open another gift.
The party continues with lively banter and fun as gifts are revealed, stolen and re-stolen. At the end of the party, everyone has some sort of gift and goes home happy with a great social experience.
